The Stables is a detached stable conversion and benefits from a large, open-plan kitchen/dining-room with a high ceiling and beams, a living room with a wood-burning stove and also has its own garden with great views over the surrounding countryside. The holiday property stands in the grounds of the owners’ 650-acre organic dairy farm; there are lovely walks from the doorstep amid the farmland. The Dorset Gap is nearby for walks amid stunning scenery, while sandy bays and nature reserves can be found along the World Heritage Coastline just 18 miles away. Dorchester (Thomas Hardy’s Casterbridge) is within driving distance for a wide range of attractions, including a lively weekly market with the beautiful Maiden Castle sure to be a highlight. A trip to the charming town of Cerne Abbas with its Tudor architecture, tea rooms and the nearby Cerne Giant is also a must on any itinerary.
The seaside town of Weymouth with splendid harbour, Georgian seafront and long sandy beach makes a great day out and the ferry for day trips to the Channel Islands also leaves from the town. Just a few of the pretty Dorset villages to explore are Abbotsbury with its sub-tropical garden and swannery, Milton Abbas (the first planned settlement in England) with whitewashed thatched cottages and the 14th-century abbey, NT Corfe Castle and Lulworth with famous natural cove and over the hill to Durdle Door. There are RSPB reserves at Arne near Wareham and two at Weymouth. With good golf courses in the vicinity and a selection of excellent inns and restaurants within 7 miles, this truly is an ideal location to suit a variety of holiday needs. Shop 5 miles, pub 1 mile.

The Stables (DXS) and Armswell House (DQT) can be booked together to accommodate up to 32 guests.

Great for big families, comfortable, loved the cake on arrival. Lovely views, farm walks were great. Fantastic kitchen and lounge. Decor was a little tired but well equipped and comfortable. Would benefit from a hair dryer! My dog absolutely loved all the space and had a good holiday! Wi-Fi good in lounge and kitchen but not elsewhere. Disappointing that larger shower not working as elderly mum struggled in the small one. She also struggled with steps into various rooms. Great for hiking and pub a walk down a narrow lane for 1.5miles, not for us I’m afraid! but food at the Brace of Pheasants was fab! Good base for a true Dorset expensive and I’m now definitely a fan!

Excellent for family get together. We had to cancel a family party for my 70th in France due to COVID and decided to book in the UK for 2022. The Stables was ideal - 7 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. the kids loved being on a working farm seeing the sheep and pigs and lots of tractors. Bit of a trek to get anywhere but worth it.

The stables was a wonderful relaxing venue for a big family gathering (sleeps14). Well equipped and spacious, surrounded by beautiful countryside. The walkers in our group had some great time outdoors whilst the stay at homes had plenty of comfortable space to mooch around.lovely to have a lounge that seated us all! We hope to return❤️
